KwaZulu-Natal girl drowns in pool
Durban - A five-year-old girl drowned in a swimming pool at a residence in New Germany, Pinetown, on Wednesday, KwaZulu-Natal paramedics said.
"It is thought the girl was playing near the water's edge when she fell into the pool," Netcare911 spokesperson, Jeff Wicks, said.
The girl was pulled from the pool by a family member who found her floating in the water.
"When we arrived we immediately performed CPR [cardiopulmonary resuscitation), but despite our best efforts to revive the girl, she was declared dead on the scene," he said.
